Anita is no longer depressed or suffering severe stomach pains and allergies
I started a Vegan diet after miserable stomach cramps from eating ice cream one night as I watched the documentary "Forks Over Knives." I found Dr. Fuhrman shortly after that. I had been on antidepressants for 14 years and on 2 different antihistamine/allergy medications but still had terrible allergy symptoms. I also took Ambien when needed to sleep at night. I was getting ready to ask my doctor for new medication for chronic pain. It had flared up and nothing was helping the pain. I was so tired of being in pain and no energy.
A “ah ha” moment for me was Nutritarian recipes from YouTube that our food is our medicine. I was so tired of being in pain and no energy. As soon as I quit eating all meat, eggs, milk products, junk food and sugar, I finally for the first time in my life had energy and slept like a baby. My pain left in two days, and my swelling in my feet and ankles was gone. I got to decrease my antidepressants and got off of them completely. I do not have even one symptom of depression. I lost 20 pounds in that first month. I feel great, am happy and am looking forward to losing more weight. My allergies are gone too!! My "hot flashes" that I thought were from menopause are totally gone. I have a whole page of things that left that first month and they have not come back almost a year later.
